Default 92 SSEi with 249,000 And still kicking but

I bought it about 2 years ago with 150,000 on it and had never driven one with a supercahrger on it. I have been driving it long distances that is why there is so many miles on it. Everytime I am at a stop light I am looking around to see if there is someone to race. This thing is just wild. I will never drive anything else but an ssei. My wif and I and race a newer Eclipse the other day and just smoked his but. We pulled up to him at the light and he reved it up and i looked over an they just laughed like yeah right. So i pushed the performance shift but and held the brake. Light turned green and just whooped up on him> after I slowed he came driving past whipping us the finger. IT felt great. I thought not bad for a 249,000 boniie.

That'* the plan.

When I had my frost plug blow out problem and lost all my coolant. That 3800 of mine got hotter then hell in August, but after a quick repair and test of the engine. There was no damage.

The mechanic was quoted "No worries, that engine is bulletproof" any other engine (prolly alloy heads) would have cracked and been good for the garbage.

Long live the 3800!! keep 'er oiled and clean, its all good
